Menghai ultra-mini raw puerh tea cakes. Bought on yunnan sourcing.
Wet leaf: sweet, cereal (porridge).
Light steep; I smell/taste: medium
—→ bitterness, green, grass, honey, spices. Strong metallic (iron).
Medium steep; much better. Light bitterness Medium —→ honey, spices, metallic (iron), green, grass.
Heavy steep; I smell/taste: I’m going to skip.
A weird yet tasty tea. I rate a 90/100. Tip: if you want to avoid bitterness I suggest you use a 200 or more milliliter teapot. I enjoyed this tea still. It’s a good tea. May just be too strong for me. If you love strong teas, I suggest you try this tea. (Or if you’re curious.) The tea is good. Tasty. Fresh. Maybe I’ll find a new home for this tea. :).
Note: my apologies. I forgot to do the smell portion
Iirc, they are sold out of single tongs
Flavors: Bitter, Grain, Grass, Green, Honey, Metallic, Musty, Spices, Sweet
